Wolves in Sheep's Clothing (Matt 7:15-20)

The danger of the false prophet is an old one and so God has been warning his people against them for millennia. In these verses, Jesus instructs us on how we may recognize such a false prophet. Though at first glance the foe will appear as one of us; he will seem to be one of the sheep. However, if we dig a little deeper we shall discover that this is only a disguise and we are in fact dealing with a ravenous wolf. We are able to identify the wolves by their fruit; that is, they are known by their words and deeds. Just as a healthy tree bears healthy fruit and a diseased tree bears diseased fruit, the false teacher bears only diseased fruit. We shall recognize them by their fruits.

The Lord Preserves the Righteous (Gen 20:1-18)

Though we stumble and fall, God is gracious and faithful in preserving us. This is the lesson that is to be found in Genesis chapter 20: God preserves the righteous. This is first demonstrated with Sarah. The Lord preserved her and kept her from being violated by another man. Then God’s preservation is seen in Abimelech, the king of Gerar. The Lord preserved him and kept him from committing adultery with Sarah. Finally, the Lord preserved Abraham. Though he was guilty of deceiving Abimelech and putting Sarah in danger, the Lord still had regard for his prophet. Not only was Abraham delivered from the consequences of his sin, he was also enriched by Abimelech.

Entering Through the Narrow Gate (Matt 7:13-14)

When senators and others want us to revoke our testimony that Jesus is the only way to the Father, they are asking us to blaspheme our King and savior. Yet that will be demanded of us. Therefore, if we are going to stick out our necks for the word of Christ, we had better know what he was saying. With that in mind, we now turn to Matthew 7:13-14 to hear what Jesus has to say about the way to heaven. The first thing to notice is that Jesus commands people to enter through the narrow gate. We must take either the narrow path or the wide path; we are not allowed to sit on the fence. A choice must be made. Jesus then describes those two options. There is the broad path which is easy yet leads to destruction, and there is the narrow path which is difficult yet leads to eternal life

God Cuts a Covenant (Gen 15:7-21)

Today we shall look further into the Abrahamic Covenant for it is in this chapter that God ratifies his oath. Before that ratification actually takes place, God explains his intentions to Abram, and this teaches us some of how God tends to deal with his people. He also explains why he deals with the wicked as he does. So this section not only teaches us about God the covenant maker; it also teaches us some other things about God as well.

Out of Egypt (Matt 2:13-23)

In this section of Scripture we are going to see how Jesus is the Son of God that Israel failed to be. In many instances in the Old Testament, including one of the passages that Matthew quotes, the nation of Israel is referred to as God’s son. Yet the nation as a whole failed to be obedient to God as a Father. Therefore, if they were to be saved, one must come to be the perfectly obedient Son. That is what Jesus did, first by reliving Israel’s time as refugees in Egypt. Second, Jesus brings his people out of exile through his own exile. Third, Jesus brings salvation to the despised by become despised himself.
